I`ll probably head to Zion about 10:30.
Might be some showers around in AM that might set the time back.
Should be good, my crystal ball says upper teens to maybe low 20`s.

There is a storm passing through right now. Make sure to check the forecast tomorrow morning before heading out. I have a feeling it's going to be really strong. You don't drop 35*+ in a single day without some winds blowing through

Damn it! I suck at the weather models and predicting weather!! I knew the storm would change everything, but I thought the 35* change would bring in winds too

I was up at keegs at sun up but no winds. I waited and finally it jumped but rainy. Got about 2 hours until the wind kept shifting, rain got harder with a bit of lightening and I finally gave up. Wet gear hanging in garage :wink:

JPK, I'd hit Montrose with you, as it's much closer for me, if there's someone else going that can certify me to ride there. I just moved here from Sunset Beach, CA and have kited 5 days a week for the last 4 years and have taken training from a PASA school but twas before they were PASA certified. If any pasa instructors are going out today and can take a few minutes to pass me, please call me at eight oh one nine five three 3344. Thanks!

Anyone know who left their best kite pumped up w no bar bags board to be seen at waukeegan? Gray Nissan and black truck still here but no one around. Call me if it's yours or know who it might be. I don't want a search to have to go out on these peeps.

Some guys were on downwinders from Zion.
Could be one of those guys.
Artem and Ironben were part of that mission, maybe they know something.
What a day!
